Some patients come to me complaining that they had a full-night’s rest and yet their eyes are puffy and their drooping eyes are giving them a tired and weary look all throughout the day. This condition is caused by the excess fat and sagging skin in the upper and lower eyelid which can be hereditary or just a normal effect of aging. Having droopy eyelids and puffy bags under the eyes can easily be corrected by an eyelid surgery.
An eyelid surgery can be performed on both men and women. It can help remove excess fat in the upper eyelid that makes it puffy and can remove the excess skin that creates additional folds in the upper eyelid that might impair the patient’s vision. An eyelid surgery can remove excess skin in the lower eyelid to get rid of wrinkles and reduce the appearance of bags under the eyes. Patients with droopy lower eyelids can also benefit from an eyelid surgery to minimize the showing of the white of the eyes.
The effect of an eyelid surgery is long lasting and patients can expect to see the results several weeks after the procedure. Although it corrects concerns that you may have with your upper and lower eyelid, patients must remember that an eyelid surgery doesn’t stop the hands of time and the aging process still continues. Proper care from the damaging effects of the sun can surely help make the effects of the eyelid surgery last a long time so that patients can enjoy their youthful appearance longer.
